    BMWs from my era - they were very exciting in the 70s. These are seen at Lydden in the 90s:

    Soon after we re-launched Jeep in the UK in 1993, we also got an allocation of Vipers. We ran some events at race tracks to demonstrate the cars to our dealers and some press people. I took this pic at Oulton Park. Three Vipers, circulating nose to tail there, was quite a sight, (and sound)! VipersOulton.jpg

    Alfa SZ engine bay. Still hear that sweet V6 in my mind's ear! (And for real when my son visits with his later-type 916 GTV 3.2 version.) XTC004.jpg

    Had a few of these - the V6 is great, but the 4 cyl is better balanced and nearly as quick A>B.

    Don't get confused with the cylinder Head screws (5), there are only 4 spark plug wires ;). The car Is from 1959, 75 hp out of 1500ccm naturaly aspirated was considered quite enough back then ;).

    I didn't know if candles was the right word :) It'as amazing how the power of engines increased. 75 HP looks so little today. It's a gorgeous car nonetheless.
